Patriot's got an ultra-fast PCIe 5.0 SSD on the horizon. Here's a look at their prototype
The PCIe 5.0 era of SSD storage will soon be upon us, and Patriot's getting ready to push the interface as hard as possible, showcasing a prototype drive that promises to deliver sequential read speeds of up to 12,000 MB/s and write speeds as high as 10,000 MB/s.
While Patriot has not revealed the SSD controller or NAND used to create the engineering sample below, it is probable that Patriot's planned PCIe 5.0 SSD will be based on Phison's new PS5026-E26 SSD controller based on the specifications provided.
Patriot plans to release their next-generation PCIe 5.0 SSDs with capacity options between 1TB, and 4TB, which means that 1TB, 2TB and 4TB models should be on the way. Below we can also see that Patriot's PCIe 5.0 engineering sample features a beefy heatsink, which means that their planned PCIe 5.0 SSD models will likely ship with an equally large heatsink, which may or may not be actively cooled.

The era of PCIe 5.0 storage will soon be upon us, allowing PC builders to finally make use of the PCIe 5.0 lanes that are offered on modern AMD and Intel motherboards. Expect these new SSDs to be more expensive than today's high-end PCIe 4.0 storage drives, as they will require both high-end NAND and the newest SSD controllers in order to achieve 10+ GB/s speeds.
You can join the discussion on Patriot's PCIe 5.0 SSD plans on the OC3D Forums.

I hope with gen 4 and gen 5 drives becoming more ubiquitous this also means devs start using DirectStorage soon so we can actually take advantage of the drives full performance.
